Students will be reading the article: To Rescue or Not, That is the Question With Distressed Animals (students received their article last Friday 9/6). As students read, they are asked to make notes (annotations) in the margin. They were taught how to write annotations in class, and the article includes instructions for writing notes in the margin. After reading, students are asked to complete 4 question boxes. This assignment is DUE: Thursday, Sept.12.
Last week we began reading and discussing Hoot. Our focus this week will be on chapters 3-4. Some skills we are working on in class are vocabulary, grammar, context clues, and comprehension.
